a lot to actually gallon virginia nice the left. in fact yesterday at a chamber luncheon in anchorage, berkowitz reached out and endorsed her. the folk that are coming around here are not perceived as conservative, but they have policies of the past rather than recognizing the situation we are in right now. jenna: let's talk a little bit about the two party system. you've called yourself a constitutional conservative. do you believe the way the government is running right now with the two party system is the way that the founders intended it to run or is this country at a political crossroads today. >> it's at a political crossroads in the sense that this nation as a whole, not only here in ask but in many other states week nicest that we cannot go forward with the system we have in great, growing government, growing fiscal debts that are making the country financially. and it is time for one of the parties, and i think that is best placed in the republican party to catch that understanding and put into effect a system that reverses the growth of government. it's an opportunity to skh
the elections? virginia write, depends on how smart or stupid people are. if they're smart, the increase in poverty levels will create a corresponding increase of votes for the democrats. why anyone poor would vote republican is beyond me. missy writes it doesn't matter if democrats are at fault or not, they're the party in power. the nation looks to them for solutions. when they fail to address the very real problems this country has they deserve all the blame that is heaped upon them. joe writes, hard to say how it will affect the elections. it does indicate how effective the emfa service preventing the transfer of wealth from the rich to the poor has been. the rich are assuccumulating al the wealth. mike writes, the only group people can turn to if they are fed up with the status quo is the tea party. it's very possible people are voting for the tea party candidates simply out of frustration, not knowing what the group really stands for. she writes from arizona, it will probably be bad for the democrats as there are so many voters out there with short-term memory loss who don't rememb
mean, the state of virginia, you know very well a few weeks ago in that primary vote, you were up, what, 35 percent in a republican turnout over last time? >> huge. bill: that's substantial. >> you're going to have -- there's no doubt in my mind you're going to have a very big republican turnout and much of it if not most of it will be a protest vote. protest votes are very powerful motivation, not to be underestimated and apathy in midterms with the party in power is also a very distinct problem that occurs tile and again, particularly when times are bad, and times remain bad in the eyes of most americans. americans weren't loving the way the economy was growing when it was growing in the middle years of the bush administration, they certainly aren't happy with it now and they're not going to be happy any time soon. these measures taken now by the president i don't think are going to have any noticeable effect. bill: we'll debate if this in 30 minutes with doug schoen and brad blakeman. good to see you. >> i hope so. juliet: such a cool guy. >>> tropical storm hermine barreling into th
the november election. we're joined by former governor of virginia, doug wilder, the first african-american governor. good morning to you, governor. >> good morning, gretchen, brian. always good to be here. >> gretchen: good to have you as well. so what do you make of what the president said and then when you look at the support and how that's dwindling in the african-american community, 26% of democrats now say they're excited compared with 80% when president obama was elected. >> that's the real issue. it's not really an issue as to whether people don't still want to see president obama do well. most people in the nation want to see him do well, want to see the nation do well. the real question is is there a transference effect. is he able to say, listen, vote for such and such a people or such and such a persons because if you do that, it could help me. now, you got midterm elections almost a month away. you've got people looking pretty bad in some instances, particularly in the congress and the house. and is it enough at this time to do that? when you have this lady in atlanta
